Gavin McInnes Announces Defamation Lawsuit Against the Southern Poverty Law Center

Comedian and political commentator Gavin McInnes announced on Monday that he has filed a defamation lawsuit against the Southern Poverty Law Center.

In a statement provided to the Gateway Pundit, McInnes explained that they have “harassed me, my family, and my friends to a level of tortious interference that goes well into sabotage.”

The 70-page complaint was filed on Sunday evening in the Middle District of Alabama. The filing outlined defamation and other tortious acts resulting in reputational and economic damages to McInnes. He is being represented by the highly-respected First Amendment attorney Ron D. Coleman of Mandelbaum Salsburg P.C. and Baron Coleman of the Baron Coleman Law Firm.

According to the press release, McInnes is demanding an apology from the far-left organization for “purposefully misrepresenting his beliefs in a defamatory manner and the defamatory mischaracterization of a fraternal club he founded, Proud Boys.”

McInnes, who has been deplatformed across social media thanks to activist-reporters campaigning against him, said that the lawsuit was not just to protect him and his family, but everyone else as well.

“The SPLC has gone from a noble institution genuinely dedicated to eradicating hate to a hate group in and of itself that pretends this country is frothing with bigots desperate to foment World War III,” McInnes said in his announcement. “They purposely lie about their enemies in an attempt to ‘destroy’ them (their words) and it’s become a very effective way to make money. Scaremongering brought them the $50 million their founder originally set out to make. Since then, it’s garnered hundreds of millions including untold millions in the Cayman Islands. I don’t fault entrepreneurs, but they are using this incredible wealth to wield power over the innocent and destroy careers and businesses in their insatiable need to generate more bigots — because in the world of SPLC fundraising, mo hate is mo money.”

The comedian explained that he, and many others on the right, are tired of being portrayed as “racist, Islamophobic, sexist, homophobic, etc.” He stated that “it’s not true.”
